is the tv series based on the Books @ruthio or completly different?

Based on yes, but only roughly, they flit about from one story to the other I believe.
And in the book he is dark and good looking from Spanish descent!

The books are great, it’s the same writer who invented Vera, Ann Cleeves.
You can buy the whole series 1-8 together, I had the series as a present, really loved the books.
And you can follow his relationship(s) if you start at 1 and work through to 8.

when i first watched the series found it all grey and rainy and dull - but it slowly grows on you and once had a friend on this site who was from Shetland originally and who may have died almost alone and in pain - some of us still are grieving his loss. Thought the acting was v/good - were they all from Shetland?

@gumbud only one of the Actors is from Shetland ,I found this on YT ,

It’s Tosh who really interests me for what she has been through and how she is coping. Ann Cleeves must have personally known such a woman to get this character SO right, because she mirrors a lass I know, or rather knew as she is no longer alive, poor thing :disappointed_relieved:

Can’t wait! I live in Canada but refuse to watch North American TV or Movies as I find them absolutely unwatchable and uninteresting.
